Quoting from Simon Peyton-Jones:

> I would love to remove this dependency. Having it implies that GHC
depends on heavy-duty Cabal functionality, but of course it doesn't at
all. It means that we have to compile all 60+ modules of Cabal before
even starting on GHC. It seems wrong.

wanting to be encouraging.

We just need to do it.
